Winters Chapel UMC “In-Person” Worship Reopening Plan


INDOOR Worship ON HOLD but Outdoor Worship and Drive-Through Communion are now Available to all Worshippers!
Our reopening plan for indoor worship is still on hold until further notice, but stay tuned. The good news is that Gwinnett County has moved down from a Risk Level of Red to Orange. We are now allowed to offer outdoor worship as well as drive-through communion, following safety protocols and social distancing.

On Sunday, September 27th, Winters Chapel UMC held our first outdoor worship service at 11:00 a.m. under the portico. Join us each Sunday at 11:00 a.m. this fall, as we look forward to re-connecting with you with worship in-person. We invite you to bring your own lawn chair and whatever else you may need (your bible, coffee, blankets, etc.) and join us for live worship and music with Pastor Pedro and Misha Stefanuk. We are following all social distancing mandates (masks are only required when you cannot maintain social distancing of 6 feet of others). We hope to see you this Sunday!

Once each month, you are also invited to celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion with our drive-through communion. (Check with the church office for scheduled date and time each month). As a participant, you will enter the parking lot at the southern-most entrance and then proceed toward the portico. We will use the self-contained communion elements with the juice and wafer in a sealed package. We ask that no one will get out of their cars. You will pull up, we will hand you the communion elements and then have a short prayer for you. You can pull forward and open the communion packs or take them home with you. (see photo below for parking lot illustration).

We will continue to provide outdoor worship and drive-through Communion until indoor worship can resume (based on the guidance from our District Superintendent and our Leadership Board). Please know that the church office remains open from Monday-Thursday, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and we encourage you to call (770-396-4550) or email anytime with any question or concern.
